Do You Want to Feel Productive, Balanced AND Joyful?

Nedra K. Lee

Assistant Professor Anthropology University of Massachusetts, Boston

"I entered my first year as an assistant professor with the same work habits that I thought sustained me well as a graduate student. Harried reading, last minute writing, long sleepless nights and unclear expectations about what it means to be a successful professor left me filled with fear and anxiety that I really did not belong at my university. The FSP program gave me the tools to approach my work with greater clarity. Exercises surrounding time management and concrete goal setting helped me get more done, approach my work with a greater sense of purpose and feel confident in my knowledge about the road to tenure."


I started this week inundated with emails from our 14-Day Challenge participants! They asked for two things: 1) could we extend our Early Bird Discount on more week ("I need more time to make the ask!") and 2) can we create something for dissertation writers? Okay, okay, I hear you! First things first, we're extending the Early Bird Deadline to this Friday, July 31st. And I'm cooking up something for dissertation writers, click here if you want to more information on this evolving program!

In the meantime, I can't help but share a message I received from one of our Faculty Success Program alumni. I’m sharing it with you because over 80% of our program participants increase their productivity as a direct result of being in the program. In other words, this reflection is a common sentiment expressed by faculty members in our bootcamp. In fact, our 12-week program enables professors at any level of professional development to increase their productivity, decrease their anxiety, and manage time in such a way that they have greater work/life balance.

If you're already productive and balanced, feel free to delete this message. But if you're feeling over-worked, over-whelmed, exhausted, and not making the kind of progress you want on your research and writing, then consider joining us for our upcoming session of our Faculty Success Program (August - November, 2015). If you're willing to give us 12-weeks, then we will teach you the skills and strategies, hold you accountable for making the necessary changes, and support you every step of the way!
